Flights

Andalucía Hideaways does not sell transport, nor can we be responsible for any Airline, Train Operator or Ferry Company. On our website we offer information on the different routes available; however we neither recommend nor discourage our clients from choosing the form of transport that most suits their needs. We will be delighted to advise on the pros and cons of booking the various routes and flights available and will be pleased to help find the most convenient airport, flights and timings for you.

The following flights times are subject to occasional changes as airlines, airport and local authorities make necessary amendments.

Please note: When you fly into Gibraltar you will normally be met by your Car Hire Representative who will indicate where you cross the border on foot into Spain. You will be carrying/wheeling your own luggage until you get to Car Hire Office where the contract will then be signed. There are no porters nor luggage trolleys, we suggest you consider carefully, prior to booking, whether you are comfortably able to transport your own luggage without any assistance from the terminal in Gibraltar to the Car Hire Office in La Linea – a distance of approximately 300metres. If you are in any doubt – we suggest you book flights into Málaga, Jerez or Seville.

Malaga (AGP)

All the airlines mentioned above and many more offer regular flights between most UK/Continental European Airports and Malaga. As there are too many options to list, the website Skyscanner should help you find the best choice of flights from your local airport(s).

Change of flight times

Airlines and airports reserve the right to amend their flying schedules prior to departure. You should always be advised of any significant changes as soon as the airline implements the change. However 2 weeks before travel we suggest that you check on your airline’s website and specifically check your booking, to establish that your flights are operating as per the times on your confirmation and thus avoid any surprises.

Name changes

The name shown on a ticket must exactly match the name of the passenger travelling, as it appears in his/her passport (first full name and surname). If not, you may be refused boarding and have to purchase a new ticket for your journey, so please ensure that you email us the correct names of all passengers at the time of booking. Once your flights have been booked, it is often possible to make name changes; however you will have to cover the cost of the extra charges. If there are any errors on your Flight Confirmation Invoice you should advise the airline immediately.

Online Check In, Boarding Passes, Group Seating, Extra Leg Room

Check your airline’s website thoroughly to establish their policy on checking in online, printing off boarding passes, pre-booking flight seats for your party including those with extra leg room. It is your responsibility to establish the procedures which apply to your booking.

Cabin Baggage Allowance

Each passenger aged 2 years old or over is entitled to take one piece of hand baggage into the cabin with them. As a guideline this piece of luggage should not be any larger than 55cm x 40cm x 20cm although the size varies depending on your airline. Check your airline’s website thoroughly and establish what the cabin baggage weight allowance is too.

Checked In - Luggage allowance

The majority of airlines allow passengers to pay to check in a single bag of up to 20kg of luggage per person. There is no checked in luggage allowance for infants. The amount of luggage is strictly controlled and excess luggage charges are made direct to the airline of handling agent before passengers are issued their boarding passes. If you wish to check-in any bulky items (for example childrens car seats, bicycles, golf clubs or surf gear), please check with the airline via their website for the costs involved.

Scheduled flights

For passengers who prioritise space, comfort and in flight service - we suggest flying with BA where the leg room in economy is 31” and in Club Europe 34”. BA flies from London City, Gatwick and Heathrow to Málaga or Gibraltar every day.

Flight delays

On occasion, delays can occur to your flights, which are unfortunately out of our control. In this event, whenever possible we will ensure that the airline or operator effectively communicates the reasons for and extent of any delays and implements appropriate standards of welfare provision to our clients. ABTA recommendations state that in the event of a delay of more than three hours, clients should receive light refreshments. After six hours, clients should receive a main meal and in the event of longer delays clients should receive appropriate accommodation for the time of day. EU carriers should also follow the EU Regulation 261/2004 in the event of delays, and these cants be viewed online at www.auc.org.uk
